How is this right? Is there something wrong with the Point system? A Bug Maybe? They are listed above us right now(in both areas just in case you think I didn't look) but we are getting the 1st Place Bonus this is unfair I think.

i think clan rankings are updated at different times than the stats for clans. it should correct itself shortly.

I have noticed this before and it does correct itself.....after about 30 minutes. I just happen to think it is unfair that ppl are fighting and not getting the Bonus that they should be getting sooner.

This is from the wiki (Bonus is adjusted hourly, so even if you go crazy and rack up 3,000 clan points in an hour, the bonus for you and your clan won't increase until the start of the next hour.) So i think this lag is what you are seeing

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 10 2009 12:06 PM EDT

i think that if everything is figured in real time, then the server gets laggy. so we choose laggy bonuses over laggy performance all of the time.

ahh....Thanks for clearing that up for me. Time for an overhaul on the Clan System. Faster response times on things like this would be definitely welcomed, it would help with competitiveness in the Clan Tiers.

now is this why i had 880+ raw score, ran to to the store to grab a pack of smokes, gone no longer then 10 mins. Check my raw score it is down to 774 and no one has attacked me in that time.

Is that the same thing going on?

Also it seems a bit related to the possible duration of cache flush.

"Is that the same thing going on?"

i think that is due to clan points existing for a certain amount of time which i believe is 24 hours. so, some of the fight from yesterday dropped off whilst you were away.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] April 10 2009 1:31 PM EDT

No that is the 23 hour Window. It's to keep the Clan Tier Competitive.

I actually like the fact that clan bonuses update on the hour. It means that when you're actively fighting over the top position, there's generally a huge rush of clan points just before the hour ticks over, when you're trying to fake out the competing clans.
